Jackabella – Looking In, Looking Out

Jackabella - Looking In Looking Out CD

1.The Storm

The cow had no milk today, the chicken did not lay
So I walked to the barn in the middle of the farm in the middle of the rain
I said ‘It’s raining, pouring, really thunder storming
But there’s no need to be afraid, it’s all gonna be OK.’

The rooster did not crow today, the dog refused to play..
So I walked to the barn in the middle of the farm in the middle of the rain
I said ‘It’s raining, pouring, really thunder storming
But there’s no need to be afraid, it’s all gonna be OK.’

The sheep did not graze today, the horses had no hay..
So I walked to the barn in the middle of the farm in the middle of the rain
I said ‘It’s raining, pouring, really thunder storming
But there’s no need to be afraid, it’s all gonna be OK.’

It’s raining, pouring, but I’m quite happy snoring
‘Coz there’s no need to be afraid, it’s all gonna be OK.

2. Running

I’m running running running, and then I’l run some more
‘Coz when I am running, I smile a little more
I’m running running running running running
I’m running out the door
Jumping.. Skipping.. Dancing.. Clapping.. Flying.

3. Attitude of Gratitude

Attitude of gratitude puts you in a very good mood
There will always be a reason to feel gratitude
Yes attitude of gratitude.
Morning breaks and you awake, such a glorious day awakes
Stretch your little hands up to the sky, and feel that gratitude song arise.
Your tummy is a rumbling and it’s time for food
When Mamma puts breakfast in front of you,
Stretch your little hands up to the sky, and feel that gratitude song arise.
Well Peter has popped around to come and play
He’s my very best friend yeah he’s OK
I stretch my little hands up to the sky, and feel that gratitude song arise.
I stacked it at school and grazed my knee today
When my teacher cleaned me up and gave me lemonade
I stretch my little hands up to the sky, and feel that gratitude song arise.
My Aunty has a big old trampoline
She doesn’t use it anymore and so she gave it to me
I stretch my little hands up to the sky, and feel that gratitude song arise.
My Mamma tucks me in each and every night
She tells me that she loves me then she turns out the light,
I stretch my little hands up to the sky, I’m so thankful for my family and for my life.

4. Lagoon

The baboon went to the lagoon, to watch and see if it was safe to have a little drink
The baboon went to the lagoon, to see if it was safe to have a drink.
But the lion lion, everybody’s scared of the lion, with his vicious teeth and wild mane, who knows what he could do. The lion lion, everybody’s scared of the lion but he just wants to have a drink too.
Oh the emu.. The kangaroo.. The raccoon..
I took you down to the lagoon, to watch and see if it was safe to have a little drink
Just me and you down to the lagoon, to see if it was safe to have a drink.
We saw the lion lion, everybody’s scared of the lion, just lying there with messy hair, more thirsty than we knew. The lion lion, lets all drink with the lion ‘coz he just wants to have a drink too

5. G’day

I’m a little shy, I don’t know what to say. When others are around me I want to hide away. When you pass me by, I want to say G’day, but I don’t make a sound, Oh help me to be brave.

Just say ‘Hi there how are you? I am feeling fine thank you. Such a wonderful day today, it’s good to be alive. I like your hat, your hair looks great, your glasses suit your face. I am from Australia mate and I want to say G’day.’

That is how it’s done my friend, see talking is not hard. You will find it rather fun if you know where to start. Use your manners well, words like thank you and please. Even saying ‘bless you’ when you hear somebody sneeze.

G’day G’day G’day G’day, Konichi Wah Konichi Wah,
Bonjour Bonjour Bonjour Bonjour, Guten Taag Guten Taag. Hey G’day.

6. Rainbow

There’s a rainbow ribboning around me, there’s a rainbow ribboning around you too.

Wake up your spirit, awake.

7. Happy & Grumpy

Happy is a friend of mine, I meet him everyday. He’s always good and lots of fun, he want’s to come and play.

He’s waiting and he’s listening to see what I will say, ‘coz he needs me like I need him to have a happy day.

Happy likes to say OK, Happy has his friends to play, Happy doesn’t want his way, and Happy keeps me happy in a happy kind of way.

But Grumpy is a friend of mine, I meet him everyday. He tells me I’ll be happy when I try and get my way.

He’s waiting and he’s listening to see what I will say, ‘coz he wants me to be his friend to be the boss today.

Grumpy is alone all day, Grumpy has no friends to play, Grumpy keeps the smiles away, and Grumpy keeps me grumpy in a grumpy kind of way.

Who will be my friend today, it’s really up to me. When I play nice then everybody wants to play with me. Or will I choose to have my way, be sad and mad and mean. Will it be Happy or Grumpy today? Will it be Happy or Grumpy today.

8. It’s OK

Something frightening happened to me today, a helicopter dropped a block of chocolate on my brain, what a shame.

But it’s OK, I am loved, it’s a beautiful day, and I’m on my way.

Something frightening happened to me today, they found a burping rat inside my birthday cake, what a shame.

Something frightening happened to me today, my shoe got caught in bubblegum which made me miss my train, what a shame.

Something frightening happened to me today, my dog caught a cold in the rain and his voice began to change, what a shame.

Something frightening happened to me today, my cousin pulled my hair real hard and then just simply ran away, what a shame.

9. Elements

I feel the wind upon my skin, it’s whirling all around me, I better get my jacket on so the wind and I can play.

I feel the snow upon my nose, it’s falling all around me, I better get my snow boots on so the snow and I can play.

I feel the water on my legs, it’s moving all around me, I better get my swimmers on so the water and I can play.

I feel the sun upon my head, it’s shining all around me, I better get my sun hat on so the sun and I can play.

I feel the rain upon my face, there’s puddles all around me, I better get my raincoat on so the rain and I can play.

I feel the sand upon my hand, it’s sandy all around me, I better get my bucket and spade so the sand and I can play.

I better go get ready now so the wind, and the rain, and the snow and the sun and the sand, we can play.

10. Earth Sky Sun Moon

The Earth and the Sky and the Sun and the Moon,
The Surf and the Sea and the Sand on the dune,
The grass and the tree and the blossom in bloom,
Call out to me and they call out to you.

If I were the moon I’d sing the earth a tune, my face would shine in the wonderous sky all through the night. And when the night was done I’d give a high five to the sun, and he’d sing his love song all day long with a voice so loud and strong.

If I were the sea, the fishies would live under me, surfers could ride my waves and the tide would come and be king for a while. And if I were a tree I’d have animals sit upon me, the birds could make nests and koalas could rest and eat my delicious leaves.

Planet earth is great, don’t neglect it mate, it’s our home it’s our place, created for the human race.

11. Germ Buster Rap

The flu can fly far away, all the way to outer space, it can rap on back from where it came ‘coz I’m not having no flu today.

No!  No way!  Uh uh! No way!

I don’t want no stomach ache, it’s not for me, it’s not my mate, it can rap on back from where it came, this stomach ain’t having no ache today.

No!  No way!  Uh uh! No way!

I’m loving life and feeling fine, I clean my teeth and make them shine, I wear my smile just like a crown and I get on up when I’m knocked down.

Yeah! That’s right! Uh huh! Oh yeah!

Wash your hands right then and there and kill them germs like you just don’t care, put your hands up in the air and shake them all about everybody say yeah.

Yeah! That’s right! Uh huh! Oh yeah!

12. Fast Song

This is a very fast song and it won’t take long and it finishes at the gong.

13. Peanut

Well Peanut was a good little dog, a little bit human and a little bit wild,

She made her Mum and her Daddy so proud when she spoke and she sat and she rolled on her back.

Peanut was a good little dog but now she’s gone to heaven to hang out with God,

No more terror when we clip your toes and no more dog hair up our noses

Ooo Peanut we love you, but now it’s time for you to go

Ooo Peanut we love you, but now it’s time for you to go. Goodbye.

14. Hey Diddle Diddle

Hey Diddle Diddle the cat and the fiddle, the cow jumped over the moon

The little dog laughed to see such fun and the dish ran away with the spoon.

Who knew that a spoon could run and where on earth could he go?

He could head to the ice-cream truck and stir up some really good food.

Who had an iddle the cat could play fiddle and where on earth could he play?

He could play at the opera house and practice everyday.

Who knew that a dog could laugh and how on earth does in sound?

Just give it a tickle and he might go ‘ruff!’ and roll around on the ground.

Who knew that a cow could jump and how on earth is it done?

She could shoot out of a cannon I guess and count down from 3 to 1.

15. Little Valentine (lullaby)

Hush little baby close your eyes, you made it through to the other side, lay your head on your Mumma’s chest tonight. Your voyage was solid and a little bit rough, the road was narrow but you had enough, but now you’re here and everything’s alright.

Go to sleep, close your eyes, little valentine.

Hush little baby close your eyes, your loved more than you realize, soon you’ll live a life that is incredible. Ten little fingers ten little toes, with your fathers hair and your mothers nose, who knew that you could be so beautiful.

Dream of little duckies in a row, Dream of Christmas in the snow, Dream of presents tied with a big red bow

Dream of bunting up above, Dream of Daddy and his love, dream of silky feathers of a dove

Dream of music in the air, Dream of your favourite teddy bear, Dream of pretty rainbows everywhere

Dream of adventures in the sun, Dream of ice-cream on your tongue, Dream of kisses from your Mum.

Off to sleep, close your eyes Little Valentine.
